Bob grew up in New Plymouth, ID and also in New Meadows on a fox farm where he gained his love of fishing and hunting. Bob went to California and joined the Army and served in WWII in Germany.
In 1946 Bob met his love Winifred Richards at "Smokey Boulder." They were married on December 3, 1946. In the early 1950's they moved to the family farm in the Dixie area, along the Boise River, raising row crops, milking cows and custom bailing. They raised their three children on the farm.
Bob loved going up to "Smoky Boulder" area with his family, camping, fishing and hunting. He passed this on to his kids and grandkids.
Bob and Winifred later sold the farm and moved to Caldwell. They loved to play cards with friends, and attend Grange functions, where Bob was an active member for over 50 years. They hosted many picnics in their backyard. He also still loved going with his son Charlie and grandkids hunting and fishing.
Bob is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Winifred, daughter Roberta and great granddaughter Kristin Curtiss.
He is survived by his son Charles (June) Curtiss of Parma; his daughter Beverly Gail (Lee) Anderson of Caldwell; brother Webster (Mildred) Curtiss of Washington, eight grandkids, 17 great grandkids, and numerous nieces and nephews. He will be deeply missed.
The family would like to thank all the staff at the V.A. Home for all the love and care they gave Bob.
